Local Guides

The decades of experience working with guests from many different countries and some of UK's leading adventure tour operators has enabled Xplorato to know exactly what makes up a successful tour. Xplorato incorporates this knowledge into its safaris to make them desirable and exciting.

Every tour leader or guide in East Africa has to pass an examination in order to obtain a special license. Xplorato prides itself in hiring qualified and professional Driver Guides; they are the success of an adventurous and enjoyable safari.

All our Driver Guides have the following Qualifications:

  • Are graduates of the local Utalii College in Kenya (or its equivalent in Tanzania)
  • Multilingual
  • Members of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (Kenya only)
  • Have years of safe, accident free driving to their credit

Xplorato goes way beyond that by carefully selecting its staff and organizing additional training for them because their performance on tours is crucial. We are proud to say we have some of the best guides and tour leaders in the business.
